Day 3 of the New Year

The third day of the New Year. Another day spent helping my mom, although I did get home a little earlier today. Still, very tired from some heavy duty work. I spent the rest of the day blowing my nose due to dust allergies. Well, I wasn’t going to let that hold me back. I got in the studio to work on emptying a few more boxes. Granted, I’m still … Continue reading

Day 2 of the New Year

Day two of the New Year. Day two of my new studio! I spent yesterday evening unpacking my main quilting fabric (prints and batiks) and putting it into the microscope cabinet. It has 30 cubbyholes. I had packed away two cubbyholes of fabric into each small size U-Haul boxes (which I numbered so I would know where to put them back), so it was a simple matter of filling the … Continue reading

What a wonderful way to start the New Year!

New studio

The room is finished! The new floor is in! January 1, 2019 is move-in day for our new studio and homeschool room. I can’t wait! I think it will be so much fun to be working on my side of the room while watching my daughter homeschool her two daughters. But first I just had to enjoy the new floor for a few days. Just beautiful! Thank you, Eric for … Continue reading

Three years later

Three years ago my world changed. My sweet hubby unexpectedly left this earth and went to heaven. What an awful day. So much changed that day. Some changes were expected. A lot of changes took me by surprise. Yes, it still hurts, and I miss him something dreadful. He was my closest friend: the one who stuck by me no matter what, the one who cheered me on, the one … Continue reading

Room of Requirement Day 6

After: last items boxed and cabinets wrapped

I’m tired, and I’m claiming victory! I think I have pretty much everything packed into boxes and ready to be stored away. This process took somewhat longer than I expected! I definitely forgot that I had some of that stuff. I’m thankful for my son-in-law, Eric, who has been storing this all away in his mom’s basement (thanks, Jill!). The library card catalog drawers are over there now, along with … Continue reading

Room of Requirement Day 5

After: Library card catalog wall

I had a few busy days since my last post. I might have been in the studio for a short time, but nothing worth writing about. Today I had a couple hours so I went in. Two year old Aliza was fast on my heels. Four year old Hazel wandered in after a bit. Aliza had to see my thread cabinet and look at all the pretty colors, so naturally … Continue reading

Room of Requirement Day 4

Library drawers

On Day 4 (counting only the days I can actually work in there) of packing up my studio, I wasn’t able to get in there until late in the afternoon, and my sweet 2-year-old granddaughter wanted to help! Who was I to say no? I decided an “easy” task would be to pack up the contents of my library card catalog drawers. These are the ones that DD#2 and her … Continue reading
